Sheet Music: Score
Alone : for solo piano / Katherine Rawlings.
by Katherine Rawlings (1999)
The title of this work (Alone) is representative of what I imagine when I hear this music: the different feelings that may rise to the surface, when you find that you are alone
Alone was constructed around two scales, a whole tone scale starting on A (A, B, C#, D#, E#, Fx(G), Gx(A), Ax(B)), and the scale of C# major. It was written in Golden Section form with the point of golden section occurring at bar 21 when the theme returns to previous motives and variations on previous motives.
In the later years of my childhood, the piano
pieces that had the most profound effect on me emotionally were
by impressionist composers, such as Debussy and Ravel. In this
piece I have attempted to create a similar kind of atmospheric,
dreamy feel, reaching beneath the surface of consciousness, into
a place of reflection.
